ABtastic Tuesday!

I’m gonna keep this short and sweet, because it has been QUITE the day, and for whatever reason, this workout was a lot harder than I anticipated. I did about 20 minutes of kitchen cardio as well:

Hip Thrusts 3×15
Butterfly Crunch 3×15
Side planks (3x 1 min each side)
Bicycle crunch (3x 1 minute)
Supermans (3x 30seconds)
Back extensions (3x 30seconds)

Hope everyone had an awesome Tuesday!

I did not want to do this workout.

Today was a rough momming day. Or at least that’s how it felt by 4 o clock. I woke up, got my BANG, did my morning stretches and the rest of my morning routine (which I won’t bore you with). I did kitchen cardio after that, and debated whether or not to save my mid-section workout for right after, or nap time… Neither happened.

I didn’t get to my workout until almost 8:30 pm! I wanted to be in bed by that time, but mom life is the hard life, lemme tell ya! I was feeling so discouraged that I wanted to just grab all of the naan in the fridge and eat it, and say screw the workout.

But I didn’t because ya girl needs to SHAPE UP! So after the boys went to bed, I took a deep breath, played 15 minutes of a video game, and told myself it was time to get that workout in. It was rough and you can tell how weak my midsection is just by looking at what little I managed to do, but the key is that I got it done.

Ab/Lower Back Moves:

Reverse crunch 3×15
Hip Thrusts/Bridge Pulses 3×20
Side crunch 3×12 (per side)
Butterfly crunch 3×15
Planks 3x (30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min)
Supermans 3×6 (hold 10-15 sec)
Back extensions 3x 30 sec

Sometimes being stubborn pays off! Tomorrow is upper body day, so I might have something new to share with you guys. Bye for now!

FABUARY CHALLENGE!

Hey guys, I’m going to keep this as short as possible! This month I’ve putting a focus on my abs and back (aka my girdle).

My workouts will be simple:

  1. Running outside twice a week
  2. Dancing more
  3. Abs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays

My diet has a couple of rules too:

  1. No alcohol or beverages with calories
  2. No red meat
  3. Caffeine free the first seven days
  4. Eat fish twice a week

Since this has been day 1 of my caffeine cycle, I’m having a fair amount of brain fog. Hopefully, tomorrow will bring a more clear-headed day. I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
